    Santa Cruz is a fun little town with beaches and redwoods. The university's mascot if the banana slug, which you'll probably see on a walk in the forest.

    Didn't realize how popular of a spot this was until driving through there in the middle of July. This is tourist central, but I recommend coming in a time that is less crowded and enjoy the great atmosphere, weather, restaurants and aquarium. Great place to visit with kids too.

    Pacific Grove

    California, USA
    16 reviews

    Pacific Grove is a nice little town just south of Monterey. There's a path along the shore and plenty of little parks and beaches, but watch out driving along the coast since everyone takes their time and the tourists aren't paying attention. There's also a posted tsunami hazard.

    Cute little resort town. We had a low maintenance casual lunch at a pub for burgers & sodas with a view of the water. Little main street area was fun for us to buy taffy & fudge etc. My son made a Build a Bear-like Sea Otter at a little store. Had a local seaside town feel.

    Nice little beach town south of Santa Cruz. The beach is long and broad with brownish sand. On a clear day you can see all the way to Monterrey.

    There is a little something for everyone in Carmel. Gorgeous windswept California beaches? Check. Art galleries filled with well-known and up-and-coming artists and sculptors? Yep. Add to that great restaurants, sumptuous hotels and a one-of-a-kind outdoor theater in town, multiplied by Big Sur, Monterey, the 17-Mile Drive and monarch butterflies within an hour's drive, and you've got a full-service vacation ...

    Gilroy has numerous great wineries in the area! Generally it is $5 to taste about 5 wines. Great place to go to have a lot of wineries in close proximity and avoid the crowds and high costs of Napa/Sonoma. Clos la Chance Winery is my favorite. It has a gorgeous view and great wine.

    Felton is easily accessible from Santa Cruz or Boulder Creek yet it feels a world apart. Set up in the redwoods, this small town offers some fun adventure. There are some good restaurants yet it is the gateway to nature which most people are after. Roaring Camp and Henry Cowell State Park are here. California's oldest state park, Big Basin, ...

    A beautiful beach town that will give you a lot of beach to relax on. Come here as you are going north or south and enjoy a quick dip in the vast ocean in front of you. I really liked it because it wasn't as busy as some of the other beaches nearby.

    Marina is almost a suburb of the more popular Monterey. As you come in on Hwy 1 going north, you're probably looking toward the beach, so you don't notice the strip malls and cheap housing on the other side of the highway.

    Davenport is beautiful and wild. Walk along the bluffs overlooking the ocean and you will more likely than not see migrating whales spouting. If you descend to the beaches bring some layers as it gets cold anytime, and dont forget to pack your trash out. Be very careful swimming here, the water is treacherous as well as very cold. The ...

    San Juan Bautista

    California, USA

    Something about this town keeps bringing me back, pulling me off Hwy 101 to its old-fashioned Wild West downtown. Everyone flocks to the old Spanish colonial mission that starred in Hitchcock's classic thriller "Vertigo". But there are other reasons to stick around afterward, like the antiques shops, quaint garden restaurants and a state historic park. Pick up a loaf of ...

    If you're into the great outdoors and miles and miles of farmland, Hollister is the place to visit. Come here for sky diving and if you're interested in going to the Haunted Corn Maze during Halloween. Close proximity to the Gilroy shopping outlets and cheap(er) and larger homes, compared to the Bay Area, but a bit too far from "civilization."
